German technology company German Bionic has unveiled its latest fourth-generation Cray X robotic exoskeleton, an impressive support system for industrial workers that can offset over 60 pounds in weight.
With this new generation, the company incorporated the use of carbon fiber as a construction material in order to both significantly increase its strength while reducing weight. Thanks to the use of two high-performance servo motors, the exoskeleton can offset up to 28 kg in load, and can operate for eight hours straight with a single battery pack that can easily be swapped out. The Cray X connects wirelessly to a smart factory’s infrastructure, allowing it to receive various firmware updates, and also supports pairing with the brand’s very own Cray Visor augmented reality headset.
“With the 4th generation of our connected Cray X robotic exoskeleton, we are once again setting the standards for the entire exoskeleton industry worldwide,” says CEO Armin G. Schmidt. “Particularly system-relevant industries, such as logistics and freight, which have been under enormous pressure since the beginning of the pandemic, can now strengthen their employees backs with our new devices.”
